Miranda Lambert‘s upcoming album, ‘Platinum,’ won’t be released until June 3, but she is already giving a few hints about the new set of tunes.

The singer included a song, ‘Bathroom Sink,’ on the record, which addresses the self-deprecating way women tend to perceive themselves when studying their reflection in the mirror.

“It’s definitely more pressure on women, and we put so much pressure on ourselves to look a certain way, to look like other women,” she tells Spin magazine. “It’s hard; some days you do feel beautiful, and then someone will knock you down with a mean comment. It’s exhausting. Weight issues, fake lashes and tanning, and all the stuff that goes into just going out into public sometimes. I wish I could just not do it for a day and see what happens.”

In another track, ‘Priscilla,’ Lambert addresses the constant divorce rumors that have plagued her and her husband, Blake Shelton, since the day they tied the knot.

“[It] does it in a fun way, though,” she says. “It happens, and it’s happening a lot, lot more to Blake and I than ever before, and I thought it was a really smart take on how it happens, and I definitely don’t want people to think I’m comparing us to Priscilla and Elvis in any stretch of the imagination.”

Also on the 16-track album is Lambert’s duet with Carrie Underwood, ‘Something Bad,’ which she admits was a nerve-wracking experience.

“Singing with Carrie Underwood is very, very intimidating. I’ll be honest. She is an amazing vocalist,” Lambert acknowledges. “I sent her an e-mail, a long, blabbing e-mail about if she wanted to sing on the record, it could be cool, but maybe she didn’t want to, and if she liked the song, but she didn’t have to like the song … and when I sent it, I thought, ‘This sounds ridiculous.’”

The Oklahoma native says ‘Platinum’ showcases where she is in her own life, both personally and professionally.

“There’s humor on this album, and nostalgia, and it’s feminine,” she explains. “There’s girl power, not in the ‘I’m gonna burn your house down and kill you,’ but more where I am as a 30-year-old woman and wife. I’m more settled in life, embracing the good and the bad, and that’s all reflected on ‘Platinum.’”
